: Hey Everybody,
: I posted a message about this right before the board was cleared, so here it is again... If anyone entered anything before, I would really appreciate it if you could re-post your response. Thanks!
: I'm looking to get two pickups for an upright bass...one for myself and one for my school. The cheesy five-dollar one that I use in school makes my bass sound like an electrified milk jug. Could someone please tell me what they think is the best pickup around (not caring TOO much about price, as long as a student musician could afford it), and one very good one that a school could afford (under $50, probably).
: Also...what effect can the amp have on the sound? I and my school both have GK's...we've tried to adjust them to make the pickup sound better, but there hasn't been much improvement.
: Thanks again for your help,
Matt, underwoods are pretty good and uually available for $50- $75 used, you may like something else better , but for $50 its great.
